Together, we—Lanee Lee and Lindsay Taub—launched Voyage Vixens™ out of a love for travel and in hopes of empowering women to pursue their own passion—be it motherhood or motorcar racing. Recently, the blog garnered two bronze awards: a Lowell Thomas award “Best Travel Blog 2014” and a NATJA “Best Independent Travel Blog 2014”.
Between the two of us, we’ve been to more than 51 countries on four continents and counting. We’d like to invite you to come along on our journeys. You’ll gasp, you’ll laugh, but most importantly, we hope you’ll be inspired to get that passport out and voyage like a vixen…
Lanee Neil has been a journalist for more than a decade, focusing on travel, food, wine and the cocktail scene around the globe for the past several years. Her writing can be seen in Every Day with Rachael Ray, Robb Report, American Way, Cooking Light, Virtuoso, Travel + Leisure and more. Lanee has a solid track record for writing headlines that turn heads and turns of phrases that would make Hemingway swoon.
Lanee lives for quirky encounters, whether getting imprisoned by nuns in Puerto Rico, visiting Houston’s beer can house, or seeing a holy man levitate in Rishikesh. As a tippling traveler, she believes immersion into local culture begins with the taste buds and a toast – from matcha to moonshine.

Lindsay Taub is an award-winning journalist with over a decade of experience. She has written and reported for The Tennessean, Travel + Leisure digital, American Way, Boston Magazine, The Boston Phoenix, The Patriot Ledger, JohnnyJet.com, Wall Street Journal, Peter Greenberg, Smarter Travel, Green Living and more, and has developed stories for “Dateline” and “World News Tonight.” She’s the managing editor of The Pacific Punch. Lindsay has received journalism awards from the Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ) and the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication (AEJMC). She has appeared as a panelist on “News Night,” and as a guest on “Here and Now”. Her experience in social media runs the gamut.
Lindsay calls Los Angeles home when she’s there, but prefers to leave the city for the mountains and open spaces as often as possible. She loves cooking, gardening, live music, hiking with her three rescue dogs, and nothing beats cheese and wine during a spectacular sunset. If you can’t find her, she’s trekking through a jungle, seeking a seeker, admiring wildlife, or on a plane, quite possibly jumping out of it when the adrenaline junkie is at her best.
